Hi, I am so sorry you are going thru those fearful experiences. I think you hit it right on the head, that your pain killers remind you of what you felt like on crack. I never used it myself, but narcotics are all pretty much similar. I have been on narcotic pain killers and even Sudefed cold med affects me that way! I cannot take it. It is like codeine to me. I have been on morpheine and other similar drugs in very high doses.
Just hold onto the truth that this is not the same thing as a crack addiction. It is a controlled circumstance. Your dreams sound like fear dreams. Being aware of this is a tool for dealing with it all in a healthy way.
